Herschel Walker Calls for Don Lemon’s Firing Following Racist Comments

Football legend Herschel Walker came out swinging in support of Kanye West and Donald Trump, and against CNN’s Don Lemon. The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner is calling on CNN to fire the racist host over his Kanye criticism.

Yesterday, during an appearance on Wolf Blitzer’s show, Lemon compared Kanye West visiting the White House to a “minstrel show,” adding “I couldn’t even watch it. I had to turn the television off because it was so hard to watch.”

That’s when Walker had had enough:

Watch Lemon’s despicable comments here:

On Lemon’s own show, he laughed in agreement as two of his panelists branded Kanye a “token negro:”

One of those panelists on Lemon’s show, Tara Setmayer, defended her comments, claiming that she simply “called out Kanye for what he is.”

Walker wasn’t having any of that, either:

Like Kanye, Walker is among President Trump’s high-profile African-American backers. He succinctly explained his support for Trump back in 2015 when he was merely candidate Trump; “We have to do what’s right to save America.” Walker, who played football professionally for over a decade, has also been one of Trump’s allies in his crusade against NFL players taking the knee. Last year be suggested that the league ban kneeling, telling TMZ that “I think it means making a league-wide rule that if you want to protest, protest off the job.”

The reason people Walker and West are such a threat to liberals is because they don’t act the way they’re “supposed to.” Would Kanye West have received 1/100th of the criticism he’s received so far, if he heaped identical praise on Obama as opposed to Trump? Of course not. There are countless of incoherent celebrities who voice political opinions, yet never receive any backlash for them, because they favor Democrats.

When the political Left talks about diversity, they want a nation where everyone looks different but thinks the same. In fact, it seems that the only kind of diversity that the Left has a disdain for is that of intellectual diversity. Black support of Donald Trump doubled following West’s endorsement, and it hasn’t stopped inching upward since. Black support of any Republican candidate past 10% puts their Democrat opponent in a demographic “danger zone,” and Trump is currently polling at 31%.

No wonder liberals are so afraid of Kanye.
